The Town is a Japanese camera taking 24×24mm exposures on Bolta film, made in the late 1940s or early 1950s by an unknown company. The only mention of the camera found so far is in McKeown.[1]


The Town looks like an oversized Hit-type camera. It has a rounded body and a top housing containing the viewfinder and extending to the right end of the top plate. The advance knob is at the top left, and seems to have an exposure counter at the base. The back is hinged to the right for film loading.

The lens is unmarked and has a fixed focus and aperture. The everset shutter is tripped by a lever on the right. The shutter plate is inscribed TOWN at the top and MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN at the bottom.
